It was bound to happen. As women entered the ranks of HEMS pilots, it was only a matter of time until misfortune struck one of them as it has so many men sitting at the controls.
It seems no one gets a pass. Take note, this could happen to you too. Are you doing everything possible to mitigate risk as you fly sick people?
For now, let's keep the families of these victims in our thoughts. As hard as it is, let's not speculate or say things that might make terrible pain even worse. Let's let the NTSB and the FAA do their jobs.
For now, let's consider these souls, and search our own.
Fly safely, friends...
